Hey bud- Been to Tampa about 3x in the last 3 years, which is a lot, considering I've been living in NYC and PDX. Here's what I suggest:any who dat`s out there can recommend places to eat, drink and visit while we are there? arriving Thursday and leaving Monday. thanks!!
The International Mall area is OK as far as restaurants go. Plenty of options, and the mall has a good mix of normal and high-end stores. The restaurants are all of the chain variety, but one could do worse. Right across the street are more high-end restaurants, again mostly chains, but good stuff. I'm a fan of Texas de Brazil because who doesn't love all you can eat BBQ'd meat? One of the times I was there the Bucs offensive line was sitting together testing the limit of the all you can eat policy.I was there last year for the Saints game...Last year the Bucs stayed at the Renaissance at the Tampa International Mall the night before the game...there is a a cool outside restaurant area the there with 5/6 open air restaurants...I coulda sworn when we were walking through there was a table of Saints players on Saturday night at one of the restaurants. Don't quote me on it, but def looked like NFL players and I know they weren't any Bucs. Very cool mall to check out, and it's close to the airport & stadium. The Restaurants aren't in the mall...there outside next to the Renaissance Hotel.
